The 45-year-old has been hospitalised for over three months – having first been admitted back in April. Lauren then had an operation on her brain shortly after, and was placed in a medically induced coma in June to control her seizures.
And now, Lauren’s mum has revealed her daughter has suffered another major health setback – after suffering a “life-threatening spinal tear” this week.
